Web.Comp is a web competition for high school students. We’ll teach you how to build a website as we go along, rather than expecting you to be an expert already.
Web.Comp 2018 will run for 5 weeks, from Monday 26th February until Sunday 1st April. Each week, we'll release interactive notes with the information you'll need to complete the week's web design challenges. The last week will be a web design tournament where you can submit your own design and vote on everyone else's!
Every time you use the web, you're seeing HTML and CSS. Creating a website is one of the most useful technical skills you can learn.
Web.Comp teaches you HTML and CSS, the powerful building blocks needed to build a website from scratch. Learning to write HTML and CSS by hand gives you full control over the look and interactivity of your site, so you can implement your web designs exactly as you imagined them!
You'll learn the basics of HTML, CSS, and how the internet works. We'll also teach you how to apply design principles to transform design briefs into digital creations. Click the badge for more details.
Check out some student designs submitted to the Web Design Tournament in Web.Comp 2017. Students with no previous coding experience were given the HTML for "Party Planet" (a fictional party store) in Beginners, and "Harvest Markets" (a fictional grocer) in Intermediate, which they styled using the web design skills they'd learned in the previous four weeks!
